SDCC 2018–Super7 to feature Universal Monsters, Planet of the Apes, Masters of the Universe exclusives and more

Super7 is returning to San Diego Comic-Con in two weeks with more great new products for 2018.  And you can find new releases not only in the main dealer area at SDCC (Booth #4945), but at two events at the Super7 downtown store at 701 8th Avenue (a 10-minute walk from the San Diego Convention Center)–with some items only available at the store.  For the first offsite sale, Hordak’s Lair from Masters of the Universe is the theme of the first event Wednesday, July 18, from 9 p.m. to Midnight and Thursday, July 19, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.  It will feature the latest Super7 MOTU releases as well as exclusives and debuts created specifically for the event, like an exclusive 5.5-inch Laughing Prince Adam figure.  Limited quantities will be available only at the Super7 store, with another opportunity to order for October delivery being announced at the Super7 website soon.  Hordak’s Lair will also offer an exclusive site-only sale of a new She-Ra & Hordak 3.75-inch ReAction figure 2-pack with new, original card art by Jason Edmiston.  Super7 will also premiere its new blind box assortment of She-Ra Keshi 1.75-inch Figures.

Then the Super7 switches gears for a Universal Monsters “Boodega Corner Monstore” Friday, July 20, from 9 p.m. to Midnight, Saturday, July 21, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, July 22, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  That will be the only place to score four Universal Monsters on these new cardbacks:

Other exclusives at the Boodega only include four Universal Monsters 7″ x 21″ felt pennants and enamel pins.  So what’s available at the actual convention?


You’ll find something for nearly everyone at the Super7 booth.  To accompany the 2018 release of Planet of the Apes ReAction figures is the Planet of the Apes Statue of Liberty Action Playset.  Like the original Kenner playsets it is inspired by, this doesn’t include any action figures–just the plastic base, cardboard backdrop and Kenner-style box.  We’re also guessing Super7 will have some of the figures on-hand.


The Alien “Space Wars Headhammer” tribute Xenomorph 3.75-inch ReAction figure with coin is also a Con exclusive (note that this figure would make a good addition to last year’s Super7 exclusive The Worst figures, also inspired by original Kenner Star Wars figures plastic colors and sculpts):


Lucky fans will be able to pick up a Transformers “Super Cyborg Optimus Prime” 12-inch figure with removable chest plate:


There’s also a Misfits “Fiend” ReAction figure and a set or Iron Maiden M.U.S.C.L.E. figures:


More items are likely to be available and/or previewed at the Super7 events in the coming weeks.
